Geobiology integrates many disciplines, from genomics to paleoenvironmental modeling to paleontology and geochemical analysis.
They can be fruitful individually but, when combined, result in profound insights about life-past, present, future and elsewhere.
Acknowledging that earth and life are interacting during the whole process and the earth today are a result of long time of molds to life, geobiology science investigates macro- and micro-scale changes in the present as well as in the fossil record.
Methodological approaches used in geobiology varies from lab experiments to field investigations.
Geobiology is a new scientific disciplinary, which has just been defined in the last decade.
Geobiology is the study of the relations between the Earth and life.
It is an area which allows the study of the effects of the cosmic and earthly rays, of the architectural forms, of materials, of colors, of technological products, etc..., on living beings.
We all have seen that certain locations spread a feeling of wellbeing, whereas other places let us feel uneasy.
For certain families or businesses, only bad luck is to be found; for others, success.
Everything around us is vibrations. The energy forces of our environment can be harmonious or in disharmony.
Our living space, our place of work and our recreation areas are under the influence of these forces, acting unsuspectingly on our organism.
These waves, present in the entire universe, may cause varying pathogenic effects and affect our physical and mental well-being, as well as our behavior.
After a long-term exposure at harmful locations, troubles may appear, ranging from simple disagreements to more serious pathologies: loss of vitality, insomnia, cancer, suicide, dementia... according to the sensibility of the individual Given the fact that geobiology can be embodied in any geography or biology related research fields, this book gives a holistic perspective of this science.
Subjects in this book include geobiology approaches in environmental problems, natural resource, archeology, archaeology, social science research, and biotechnology.
Geobiology is an exciting and rapidly developing research discipline that opens new perspectives in understanding Earth as a system.
To determine and to exploit its possibilities, this promising scientific field will benefit from a discussion of its definition as a research discipline, its objectives, and its methodological approaches.
Such a spirited discussion is the objective of the book.
Geobiology touches various subdisciplines of geology and biology in many ways.
The book will serve biogeochemists, paleontologists, biomineralogists, microbiologists and many others as a forum to determine future directions of geobiological research.
